|Levite - 2nd Mouse|
A second release for 2nd Mouse following the hugely popular Full Of Earth And Stars, so expect hugely entertaining beeps, bleeps, beats, squelches and sqwonks. Is sqwonks a word? It is now. 2nd Mouse's mastery of synthery sees him bringing pretty much every VST Synthesizer to the table in a fantastic blow out of danceable tune-ageddon.

|An Exploded Few - Imploded View|
This collection is the introductory début by Imploded View, aka Jerome McCormick. this is not forward in going backwards with this exciting blend of experimental electronic music. Although the music here could be refered to as IDM, it's not a term that Imploded View is comfortable with. There's a whole manner of synth washes, retro in style for the most part, and hooks which are both catchy and un-catchy at the same time...

This time, we have a wonderfully eclectic selection of cover versions that, while honouring the originals, breathe new life into perhaps familiar tunes.

|Wait For No Man - Heskin Radiophonic|
Wait For No Man is inspired by the sensation of standing on a beach, watching the waves crashing and breaking mere feet away and the combination of strength, beauty, destructive power and the slow passage of time. It captures these sensations through a series of drone based tracks, featuring subtle melodic patterns, delicate guitar work and glitchy percussion.

Errorhythm's first release is a culmination of the last 2 or 3 years of their live sets and bedroom noodlings. Mostly what they describe as "the more successful" of their experiments in both working on electronic music, and also of working together. Bohemian in terms of genre - but made cohesive in general feel and mood - it dabbles in dubstep, industrial and lo-fi electronica, but all clearly stamped with their unique style...

|Maelström - Katarrhaktes|
Beginnings of stories are often familiar in formula; we are introduced to characters, places, and, of course, scenarios in turn. It's when the cogs begin to revolve that we are led astray by the narrative into the unfamiliar. In this way, MAELSTRÖM sounds, in places, very much like previous chapters in the story of KATARRHAKTES. It's dense, distinctly electronic in design, and has the duality of abrasiveness coupled with frailty that one might associate with the name...

Riding the waves of fire from KATARRHAKTES’ previous concept EP MAELSTRÖM, The Xallarap Investigation is a somewhat more muted affair, favouring stripped back, simplified waveforms to the densely programmed sound fields of prior releases. This EP, written in one week, chronicles the explorations of a scientific research team whose orders are to investigate a planet given the moniker ‘Xallarap’ after extreme gravitational mirages are observed in its vicinity...
